But once again the river a Picton was focal point tragedy.

The following newspaper Evening News (Sydney, NSW : 1869 - 1931), Monday 20 October 1919, page 5 reported.

A body of a male baby wrapped in a blank and weight down was found in the river at Picton. A sad end to a tiny babies life. Was it murder or was it just and unfortunate death of a baby no one wanted known?

Suicide was a common form of death in the town. As the following newspaper article illustrates.

South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954), Saturday 11 February 1905, page 6 reported the following.

PICTON.

An inquest was held by the Coroner at the Club Hotel on Saturday, on the body of George Frederick Walsh, who was found dead at his late residence by his wife on the previous evening. Mrs. Mary Ann Walsh, wife of deceased, de posed to her late husband's depressed -state on account of financial troubles.

Deceased went out shooting with Ikey Darlington after dinner. After tea he lit his pipe and seemed more hopeful, when she went out to talk to a neighbor. She returned a little later on and saw smoke in the room. She pushed open the bedroom door, which was latched, and saw the body on the floor, in a pool of blood. Her husband never spoke to her of taking his life. He was 43 years of age and left nine children.

The Coroner brought in a verdict to the effect that deceased died from a gun-shot wound, self-inflicted.

As you can see many of the houses in Picton have a sad story hidden in its past.

But death happens everywhere. Many do not end up as ghosts.

The South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954), Saturday 29 December 1906, page 2 reported the following.

P I C T O N.

The dead body of Mrs. Mary Noonan was found sitting on a box at her residence, Menangle street, on Monday morning'. The Coroner, Mr. R. H. Antill, held an inquest at the Courthouse on the same day. Ernest Mitchell, aged 13, of Dong Gully deposed that he went to the house where deceased lived, about 9 a.m.

On that day, and found her sitting on a wooden box in a corner of the dining-room,  with her head leaning on the side board ; she was quite stiff and seem  to have been dead for several hours.

Constable Walsh deposed to taking charge of the body and the finding of a bank book with a credit of £40 8s, an old age pension certificate and deceased's marriage lines.

The Coroner found that death was caused by heat apoplexy. ( Most likely heart attack )

Does she still haunt the house keeping a watchful eye on it or has she long passed on? More importantly does the house still exist? Time it appears cleanses all.

But even in somewhat more modern times Picton was a dumping ground for murder victims.

Canberra Times (ACT : 1926 - 1995), Tuesday 6 June 1972, page 9 reported the following.

Body is found

The body of a 45-yearold Sydney man reported missing in Canberra on Friday had been found by NSW police near Picton yesterday afternoon, a Canberra police spokesman said last night.

The dead man was Mr John Anthony O'Brien, of Mosman.

Mr William Douglas Russell, 29, concrete hand, of Officer Crescent, Ainslie, was remanded in custody until June 13 by Mr Nichol, SM, yesterday on a charge of having assaulted Mr O'Brien on June 1 causing actual bodily harm, to allow police to make further inquiries.

The train tunnel into Picton has had it fair share of tragedies too.

Evening News (Sydney, NSW : 1869 - 1931), Friday 25 January 1884, page 2 reported the following.

Found Killed Picton, Thursday.

A man, wnose name is unknown, was found dead m the Picton Tunnel, on Tuesday night. It is supposed that a train passed over him, as his head and one of his arms were discovered to

have been severed from hIs body. Later. — At the Picton side of what is known as 'the little tunnel— about 10 yards from the entrance — the decapitated body of an elderly man was found yesterday morning. The body was lying across the inner rails of the up and down tracks, and besides the severance of the head, the right arm of the body was cut off. It was evident from the position that the deceased had been walking on the space between the two lines, and had been struck by a passing train and killed. The body was first noticed by the assistant driver of the up mail train, who mentioned the matter to Mr. Sayle, the foreman at the Picton railway station. The man. is an utter stranger in the locality, and no clue has been obtained as to his identity.

Is this mystery man still haunting the tunnel?
